  • Infinite

    By Rettamarie
    Great App. There’s literally an infinite amount of possibilities. Keep only 8 instruments/gadgets per session unless you want to improvise everything. Lol. Need economy deals hint hint
  • Love it

  • What happened? Latency

    By Sodathief
    I have an iPhone X S Max. Why can I hear my finger tap the screen before I hit a sound? This was never an issue before.
  • rich sound

    By dallaswaynemackey
    dificult at times to use considering its interface is like no other around but its also a power house for the same reason. u get what u pay for
  • Multi channel audio and or pattern recording

    By QuinnX.
    Great app, but with a lot of oversight. Still NO MIDI OUT!? PLEASE ADD MIDI OUT!!! Please enable midi out from gadget immediately as it has Been way too long since it release not to have this. You screwing with your customers at this point. need multi channel audio channel output routing for audiobus and live mix/processing performance. Pattern sequence recorder Ability to record your session just like ableton live records every trigger and recording sequence including patter triggering etc This probably wouldn't be needed if gadget transmitted midi, but appears to only receive midi data. .
  • Almost THE BEST APP

    By Artist Starved
    I wished this app had inter app audio capability within itself.. great app
  • Easy and fun DAW

    By Jonthethin
    You can do so much with this DAW. It is fast and very easy to navigate. It’s great for all levels. Even though I have multiple DAWs, I keep coming back to this one. It’s just so convenient!
  • Dope

    By slapmane
    I wrote a review complaining about thebfact that I couldnt backup the projects. My mistake, I fugured it out. Korg Gadget is dope and its money well spent
  • Please improve midi import or copy/paste bars. Please!

    By Tmidiman
    The result of importing a midi file into Gadget is painful and almost unusable. Imagine importing a 3 minute song into Gadget. Over 40 individual scenes!! And if you want to reconstruct your midi file, so each scene is a verse, chorus, or bridge,...forget it! Moving a bar from one scene to another deletes the previous bars in that scene. Gadget needs better importing for midi. Gadget also needs to be better at nondestructively moving around bars to different scenes.
  • Great Beginner to Intermediate Level

    By Pzyklon
    As someone who started out exclusively on iPAD music, Korg was a blessing, when in 2013/14 and with my iPAD Air, I felt like the king of the world. Of course now, many year later, sadder, wiser and on Ableton to produce more professional sounding music, I have had to hang up my boots for Gadget. But Korg’s other iOS apps are still spot on with Mono/Poly and Module among others, and I use them extensively even today. But Gadget is a bunch of low powered delectables that should please the beginner and the intermediate musician. Of course, it doesn’t mean that professionals can’t use it to create great sound, its just that Ableton trounces it so much that its not worth my while to be using Gadget as my DAW. Anyways, the show goes on and good luck to the iOS music community. Let’s get some original music out there and show the older musicians how we’ve matured!
